  1. Health-care reform and its impact on African-American surgical specialists.

    Article - En anglais

    Since 1960, numerous concepts of health-care reform have been submitted to the US Congress and the American public with different viewpoints and objectives.

    The priority for the US Congress to pass a bipartisan health-reform plan has been circumvented by the newly elected majority Republican Congress.

    Nevertheless, health-care cost containment, quality control, and health-care delivery concepts have been implemented gradually into the concept of competitive managerial health care.

    A few of the serious problems in the African-American community are the efficiency and quality of the health-care delivery system and the effects of managed care on African-American primary physicians and surgical specialists.

    The critical shortages of this group, especially the latter, may create a dilemma in the implementation of a quality surgical care delivery system.

    The Association of American Medical Colleges, the American College of Surgeons, and other affiliating organizations should become sensitized to the African-American community's health needs, deficiencies, and the rational institution of an equitable, efficient, comprehensive, and quality health-care plan coupled with a sustained and increasing supply of certified, diversified, and experienced African-American surgical manpower in company with family practice physicians and primary care physicians.
